We went to the annual "Yule Ball" at the Middle East club in Cambridge, Ma and I had their version of a Butterbeer. Oh my god! It is so good. But go easy on them, they sneak up on you.


  1. Add ice cubes to tall glass.
  2. Add vodka.
  3. Add schnapps.
  4. Add soda.
  5. Enjoy and drink responsibly.
  6. I used ounce measurement because this site doesn't accept "parts" as a valid measure. But basically, it's equal parts vodka and schnapps to half as much soda. You can adjust the soda for a less strong version.

I am not a big Harry Potter fan, but have heard of this drink. I made as written and agree, it is strong, but the flavors that stand out are the butterscotch and vodka. Was worried I might not like it with the cream soda, but thought it was a tasty drink. Thanks for sharing a fun recipe. Made for PAC 2011.

Whoa! Super strong even for me. I can see this has potential but I would definitely decrease the vodka by half next time. I even used more cream soda. Thanks for posting though!

Delicious! I'm not so much a fan of vodka, so I use vanilla rum instead, but I love this stuff!
